Rene Lalique produced some of the most famous art glass pieces of the 20th Century. From perfume bottles and vases to drinking vessels and figural sculptures in glass, Lalique was synonymous with high quality artistically designed fine glass and crystal pieces of the Art Nouveau circa , Art Deco circa ss and Art Moderne ss movements. He made perfume bottles for Francois Coty, designed chandeliers on luxury cruise liners like the Normandie, produced glass plates for elite collectors, added his artistic touch to windows on New York's trendy Fifth Avenue like Tiffany glass windows , designed automobile mascots replacing the passe hood ornaments, decorated high profile train cars including the Orient Express, and ran a factory that made vases, clocks, decanters, boxes, bowls, goblets, etc. Lalique pieces featured women, mermaids, birds, flowers, insects, fish, snakes, vines and the list goes on. Lalique was a very busy designer!
Lalique pieces are clearly marked with the Lalique insignia or mark. As I have told audience members at my appraisal events worldwide who have thought they had an authentic Lalique piece yet didn't or those who thought they had a coveted Lalique piece from the period of Rene Lalique's lifetime that is an early s piece dating to before and didn't, you need to learn what the marks look like--both real and fake.
And there are a lot of fake marks out there. Fake Lalique marks are very commonly found. Some of the easiest fake marks that are trying to convince buyers and collectors that a piece of Lalique is older than it really is include the following words, phrases, or letters: R the registration mark was used only after and it is not an authentic Lalique mark used during Rene Lalique's lifetime, the word 'cristal' is not an authentic early Lalique mark as that word was not used by Lalique, and the phrase 'bottle made by' was not used on perfume bottles made by Lalique in the early years of production.
Avoid pieces with these marks if you want to collect authentic and valuable Rene Lalique glass. It goes without saying that condition is vital to the value of a piece of Lalique. The piece cannot be chipped, cracked, or damaged in any way if you want to command top dollar for it on the market.
Specific figural forms of Lalique glass are more desirable than others. For instance, Lalique car mascots, perfume bottles in the form of flowers with original stoppers, horse heads, figural animals and birds all all rare, quite collectible and ultra valuable. Collectors regularly pay thousands of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars for such Lalique art glass.
